With the end of the school year in sight, chances are you’ll be thinking of what to do with the kids over the long, summer holidays.
Here are five reasons why you should put dance camp on the calendar this summer:
Dance allows kids to develop social skills
Teamwork and participation in dance class is encouraged. This can help kids socially branch out in a small or large class setting. Children learn to take turns playing dance games, respect others’ personal space and cooperate toward a common goal. Many kids dance camps work on a performance for the end of camp. This allows children to work together towards a goal, while helping them to build confidence and performance experience. Priceless life lessons!
Dance is for anyone
There are a variety of classes offered such as jazz, Hip hop, ballet and tap starting from beginners to advanced classes. This allows different styles of dance for different personalities and age groups. Youth dance camps are no longer just for little girls in tutus. Nowadays plenty of boys take advantage of tap lessons, tumbling instruction, and of course, kids’ Hip hop classes. As dance becomes more popular, we are seeing a breakdown of gender barriers. Bottom line? Dance is really for anyone who wants to do it.
Dance can improve your child’s flexibility, muscle development and cognitive development. Stretching and balancing both contribute to a stronger, more flexible body. Studies have suggested that the more active a child is, the stronger their core. Plus it’s a fun way for kids to move around in a safe and fun setting!
Improves kids’ learning process
Dance boosts children’s memory through the learning of choreography. This helps develop learning skills to improve their academic and social life.
Kids dance camp is fun
Lastly camp is designed to put a smile on kids’ faces. They get to dance to their favorite music and have a good time learning! Be sure to check out Dance to EvOLvE summer camps in your area.
